His Representative

And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus.
Colossians 3:17 (NLT)

We have choices. I wish it were as easy as becoming a Christian, and from then on, everything we do would be pleasing in His eyes. But it doesn’t happen that way. No more than getting married guarantees that everything we do represents what a good spouse should be like. Much of what we do is far from God’s desire. Yes, we choose to become a Christian, and it sets our course. But then we must live it out every day. But how? How do we live the way He wants us to? By maintaining a vibrant relationship with Him, being purposeful in the way we live, and being conscious of the love, He has for us. This helps us make the daily choices we need to be His disciple. Today, may God give us the wisdom, courage, and strength to live for Him so we can say with Paul, “Whatever I do or say, I do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus!”

Father, help me filter what I say and do so that my life will be pleasing to You. Guide me by Your word. Empower me through Your Holy Spirit, I pray.
